Midtown from afar in 2016.
| Michael Kahn, Curbed Atlanta

Last year, Midtown snatched national recognition as a "Great Place to Live," as development in the neighborhood continued to ratchet up. As we settle in to 2017, the horizon shows no hints of the growth slowing down.

While some projects have wrapped from our summer 2016 development map, more have been announced to fill the gaps, keeping the number of oncoming and predicted Midtown developments in the 40-something range. Not all projects are colossal, but collectively, this amount of activity is fairly staggering for a single submarket.
